Saina Nehwal has resumed training at a separate facility in Hyderabad and is likely to join the national camp at the SAI Gopichand academy in two weeks.

Saina is one of the eight Olympic hopefuls allowed by the Sports Authority of India to resume training at the academy from 7 August, following the Telangana government’s approval on 1 August. Saina is currently training with P. Kashyap, her husband, and R. M. V. Gurusaidutt, the 2014 Commonwealth Games medallist, at a different centre near the Gopichand academy.

“We have been training at a centre near the Gopichand academy for a week now. It is a small facility. We started with the basics as it was after a long time that we were hitting the court,” Kashyap, a former Commonwealth Games champion, told PTI.

“Saina has just joined. She will probably start training at the Gopichand academy in a couple of weeks. She wants to get fitter and reach a decent level. She has sought the permission of Gopi sir and discussed it with new Indonesian coach Agus Dwi Santoso,” he added.

Kashyap, who is currently 24th in the world rankings, believes the Gopichand academy is equipped with enough courts to accommodate a few more players and they can start training by following social distancing and other regulations laid down by SAI.
